My First Bear Paper Piecing

So I am tying something new with my scrapbook layouts, paper piecing! I see all these cute paper piecing and decided that I wanted to try and make some. I found this cute patern Treasure Box Designs. They have some super cute patterns!

Anyways, here is the bear I have been working on. I ended up having to go to Michaels to get a few tools to finish him up. I am now working on the layout he will be placed on. I will post the layout as soon as I am done.

Isn't he cute!!

Cricut Cakes Toppers

On Easter was my son's 12th birthday and today is my oldest daughter's 15th birthday. We celebrated both birthday's at Grandma's house on Easter day. I decided to make two quick cakes for both of them. To make it easy I decided to make Cricut Cake Toppers. My son's cake was decorated using the Spongebob Cricut cartridge and for my daughter's cake I used the Paisley Cricut cartridge.
I think they both came out super cute!! What do you think?
